What about the humidity?
You can use 12 hours of light but the humidity is key.
some folk even use 24 hour continuous light!

There is no doubt that several methods work as can be seen documented on this forum.
Personally I dont open the top or spray but others seem to think ‘airing the tank helps in some way.
